Whether it is worth changing the capital?

Moscow, extending indefinitely, will push off St. Petersburg to the Baltic Sea. The border of the city will remind a radioactive trace after nuclear explosion - an oval in the Western direction.

Thus, a number of problems is solved. Deletings of sides between the city and the village - about what were constantly told by Bolsheviks, leakages of youth to both capitals, unemployments in rural areas. But

the City - quintessence of consumption . And consumer society is in the deadlock. Why? Resources of Earth will end sooner or later. Energy production on Earth more than one percent than gives us the Sun, is fraught with strengthening of nonequilibrium processes in the atmosphere, and, therefore, hurricanes, droughts, floods both other, and other, and other No new technologies will rescue here. Only reasonable self-restriction of requirements what I, naturally, do not trust

At a supergorod in, therefore, is not present the FUTURE!!!

What exit ? Division of business and federal functions of Moscow strong-willed transfer of the capital far inland, for example, on a meridian of Krasnoyarsk. There is a geographical center of Russia what everyone can be convinced of if weighs the firm cut-out map of the country on threads. It is a way of finding of the center of gravity of the area of a difficult figure. It will give a new impulse to development of the country in east direction - otherwise we will lose the Far East.
